NOSBIS (North Okanagan-Shuswap Brain Injury Society) will be holding its 1st Annual Canoe Creek Fundraising Golf Tournament on Saturday, August 20th, 2016. The success of the tournament relies entirely on participation by enthusiastic golfers, so we hope that you will consider being one of those golfers!

Since NOSBIS was incorporated as a not-for-profit society in 1994, approximately 700 individuals – clients, caregivers and family members – have been directly or indirectly impacted by the services NOSBIS provides. Funds raised from our 1st Annual Canoe Creek Golf Tournament will allow us to continue providing the services that our brain-injured clients have come to rely on. All proceeds from this event will stay in the community, and will be used to provide direct services to the large, and ever- growing, number of individuals in our community who live with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).

On Saturday, August 20th, the tournament begins at 1:00 p.m. with a shotgun start for the 4-person scramble format. The cost is $160 per person for walkers, $180 per person with a cart, $600 for a group of four walkers or $640 for a group of four with carts. Golf carts are limited. The buffet dinner, which starts at 6:00 p.m., is included in the price. There will be lots of prizes, including a new vehicle donated by Braby Motors for a hole-in-one. A tax receipt will be given for the donation amount.

Golfers can register and purchase tickets at the Canoe Creek Golf Course (6015 Shaw Road, Salmon Arm, 250.832.3285) or at NOSBIS’s office (364B Ross Street N.E. Salmon Arm, 250.833.1140). Cut-off for tickets and registration is August 13th.

The Canoe Creek Fundraising Golf Tournament is slated to become NOSBIS’S major annual fundraiser. We invite all golfers, of any level, to join us in raising funds to benefit the brain injury survivors in our community.
